Abstract

In order to inspect safety and function regarding the reduction of cadmium poisoning by polyphenol compounds prepared from persimmon leaves (Diospyros kaki folium), animal test was done. Rats, group P-1 and P-2, were treated with cadmium and polyphenols of persimmon leaves. A control was just treated with cadmium. GOT activities in P-1 and in P-2 were lower than that of the control without considerable difference, whereas GPT activities decreased in P-1 and P-2. The SOD activity of liver tissue increased in P-l and P-2 compared with that of the control. GST activity was higher than that of the control without considerable difference in P-1; however, it increased in P-2. Lipid peroxide value considerably increased in both P-1 and P-2.
